Lindsey Wilson's Chase Spreen hit a three-quarter court three-pointer at the buzzer to hand No. 5 Georgetown College its first Mid-South Conference loss.
The No. 14 Blue Raiders (13-4, 5-1) battled back from a 15-point halftime deficit to win 79-78 over the Tigers (15-3, 6-1) Saturday in Columbia. Georgetown had a chance with two seconds left to make it a four-point game, but Garel Craig missed both free throws and Spreen capitalized. The game's leading scorer grabbed the rebound and threw up the shot for the victory.
Spreen finished with 23 points and also led LWC with 19 rebounds. Maurice Pearson had 21 points to lead GC. Tyrone Shelley had seven rebounds to lead the Tigers. Aaron Morris finished with 12 points, Shelley 11 and Allan Thomas 10 to round out the double-figure scorers for Georgetown.
The line was the nemesis for GC all day as the team missed 11, 15-of-26, while LWC went 25-of-30.
Kalen Kimberland had 17 points and Wesley Hanspard 16 for all the Lindsey double-figure scorers.
The Tigers return home to host University of Rio Grande team Thursday. Tip is set for 8 pm. They will then play West Virginia Tech, which is not a conference game this year, but the Golden Bears have been piling up the wins against their former MSC foes. WVT beat University of Pikeville Saturday. Tip for that game is set for 4 pm.
